There was two issues I encountered while trying to create a sitemap:
1) on the FTP side when you try to change the file attribute of sitemap.xml and ror.xml I get a
"500 'SITE CHMOD 666 sitemap.xml': command not understood" from the FTP client (FileZilla)
2) I went ahead and tried to create the sitemap anyways and I got this error not sure if its related to the first issue. The page wouldnt stay so this is only a partial error message:
An error has occurred there was an error while retrieving the URL specified: ......
